I am assuming that you are considering to ask social security administration to increase your own benefit.
The simple answer to the question is why not. There must be a reason for you to consider, and there could be other factors you think social security administration should know about your situation. Even if we are rejected or declined, we at lease have our questions answered and learned of the reason why. Of course, you can and should approach social security administration.
A general telephone number is ***** below for your information. Personally, I would like to go to a local office to talk with a representative face to face.
Please feel free follow up with questions.
